Title: Can't boot - really stuck
Post by: tomf on May 23, 2017, 12:26:14 am
Hardware: EPIA-M910 (VIA Eden X2 U4200)

With verbose boot on, it sticks at:

Timecounters tick every 1.000 msec
enc0: bpf attached
lo0: bpf attached
vlan: initialized, using hash tables with chaining
tcp_init: net.inet.tcp.tcbhashsize auto tuned to 32768
IPsec: Initialized Security Association Processing.
pflog0: bpf attached
pfsync0: bpf attached

At this point, control alt delete doesn't work - it's hard frozen.

With ACPI disabled, some earlier stuff about speedstep goes away but the boot still sticks at the same point.

- nano and vga images
- i386 and x64 images
- disabling ACPI in the BIOS
- disabling NICs in the BIOS
- ACPI mode off using the boot menu
- safe mode in the boot menu
- checking BIOS is latest available
- all of the following hints (can you tell I'm clutching at straws):

Appreciate any pointers / thoughts please.

Partly what strebor suggests, I would try and install FreeBSD and see if that will boot at all.
Of course, you don't have pfsync then, but perhaps it's an underlaying problem.

The page for the board is odd in what it supports :-)
Also seems to be an older board as it supports Windows 7 as a maximum, and that OS came out in 2009.

"Windows® 7, Windows® CE 7.0, Windows® 6.0, Windows® 5.0, Windows® XP"

Never heard of Windows CE 7.0, Windows 6.0 or Windows 5.0...

Windows CE ran on a PDA and lives on as an embedded OS. The Eden silicon is x86 based though. Any issues with FreeBSD are likely driver related.
